1. Bryce Huff

The most realistic signing for the New York Giants this offseason would be Jets defensive end Bryce Huff, who is set to hit the open market this offseason. We can expect the 25-year-old standout to have a lot of interest in free agency, as he has emerged into one of the league's rising pass-rushers after a breakout 2023 campaign with the Jets.

One landing spot for Huff may not be as far away as you would imagine, as ESPN predicts the crosstown rival Giants could pursue the rising defensive star. Regardless of what the coaching staff looks like for the G-Men next season, Huff makes a lot of sense for Schoen and the Giants front office to pursue. 

Last season, the Jets' defensive end had 29 combined tackles (19 solo), 10 sacks, 10 tackles for a loss, and 21 quarterback hits in 17 games. Huff also had the fifth-best pass-rush win rate on third and fourth downs, making him a good pairing opposite Thibodeaux in 2024. 

While nothing is certain about Huff's next landing spot, I believe he will test free agency and ultimately leave the Jets this offseason. If that does happen, the Giants have a strong chance to push for the free-agent pass-rusher. Still, whether it is Huff or someone else on the market, Big Blue will need to improve the edge position. Schoen needs to deliver here.
